PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — 1984. High tops. A Happy Meal. A Silver boom box.

Nearly 50 items were removed from a time capsule in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square that were placed there when it opened 30 years ago.

The items were briefly on display at Pioneer Courthouse Square before being taken to the Oregon Historical Society for an exhibit that will open June 27.

Another time capsule will be buried for the next 20 years. The public can suggest new items for this time capsule through the end of this year. Suggestions can be made online – TheSquarePDX.org
